Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Russell-Silver dwarfism. Image showing the short stature of a 21-year-old female patient with Russell-Silver syndrome (RSS), compared to her healthy brother behind. RSS is a growth disorder that is one of 200 forms of dwarfism and one of five types of primordial dwarfism - dwarfism that results in a smaller body size in all stages of life beginning from before birth. It is one of the few forms of dwarfism that is considered treatable in some cases. Treatment is through carefully controlling the calorie intake of affected children in order to provide the best opportunity for growth.
